Oh Slicci. How do I love...
June 1, 2011
Oh Slicci. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Or at least write a little review blurb.

Seriously, this is the best pen I've ever written with. I am a pen junkie (like I suspect many of you are). I love my Hi-Tec-Cs, I love my Sakura Microns, I love my Staedtlers...but the .25mm Slicci is a dream come true. Right now I have 8 colors, and I have 10 more on the way. I'm writing this review for the black pen because a) it was the first Slicci I bought and b) I use it most.

Things I love about the .25mm Slicci:

1. Super-fine tip that is also sturdy.
2. Ink flows very well, rarely skips.
3. So many colors!
4. My tiny hands love the thin barrel.
5. Very lightweight; easy to use for extended periods of time
6. With the superfine tip and gel ink, lines drawn/written are VERY precise. I've drawn incredibly intricate things with the Slicci that I never would've been able to with my other pens.
7. All this for only 3 bucks.

In the interest of fairness, I'll say the following:

The purple Slicci disappointed me a little bit. It's a fuchsia-ish shade, and I like rich royal purples. Also, something about purple gel inks, for some reason they never flow quite as well as other colors. Just my bad luck? Maybe. I mean, the purple Slicci is still a wonderful pen, but it could use some tweaking.
Caveat to my number 4 above: Yes, I love the thin barrel, but I recognize that it isn't for everyone. I have an...unconventional...way of holding pens that is most conducive to thin barrels. Those of you who find it too thin, perhaps a rubber grip thingy would help?
Yes, I've had a couple Sliccis (even black ones) die on me. Chances are some of them actually ran out of ink, knowing how much I use them. For the ones that still had ink, if I set it aside for a few days, it'd usually start up again. Some of them might just have had screwy tips. Clearly my few uncooperative pens haven't dampened my love for the Slicci in general!

I realize I've basically written a dissertation here, so I'll sum it up in two words: EXCELLENT PEN. :)

Just what I'd expect from a Slicci-Sharp clean lines while delivering a smooth experience for the point size. First couple sentences I wrote with it, I had to do some scribbling, but ever since, it's preformed flawlessly. The skipping is barely noticeable and I'm pretty picky. I have yet to find this crisp sharp line from another pen, and I may never. This puts an end to all of my problems-its pretty much everything I need. The only concern I have is that I've heard these die out. This pen writes so well though that I am going to have to overlook it. The skinny barrel is another thing that people complain about, but after a week of use, it feels normal to me. As far as coming out of a package and having amazing results, this is a five out of five. I would definitely try this out if you like a sharp, clean, and consistent line. This pen is definitely my pen of choice.

The line is suitably fine but I find the pens dry out very quickly and I have never been able to use one up before it clogs on me.

Yep, this is my pen of choice. I've been studying japanese lately and needed a pen to write kanji small but discernable- this does the trick. Strong tip, hardly every skips during writing, and the ink is actually black.

Get you a 5mm ruled notebook with graph paper on the left hand sides (for larger kanji memorization and writing practice) and get your study on with this bad boy! The only con is that it is skinny so it will hurt your hard if you grip it too hard. Be delicate, or get a gripslip for it. 5 out of 5!

This is my favorite pen! Smooth line, never skips. You do need a light hand to use this fine of a tip. I drive people I work with nuts with my super fine point pens. I've used the black, blue, orange, green and purple slicci 0.25's and only had trouble with the purples. The rest are my tried and true go-to pens for everyday and everything.

A nice small line is made by this 0.25 pen. Good for drawing as well as writing.

In my first and only test, this pen was MUCH better than the comparable Pilot Hi-Tech-C.

I bought this cause my friend has one and I liked it when I tried it and let me say that it is worth getting. It has very nice thin lines that I just love for drawing and it was pretty cheap.

Scratchy, weak, died on me pretty quickly... I got two of them, and I wasn't satisfied with either after coming from an SKB SB-1000. These pens will flow for a few minutes and then just die on you until you give them a shake or run them under some water. Very dissatisfied. I'm surprised they got such good reviews, maybe I got duds?

I own two normal Sliccis, both in 0.25mm, and a multi pen with 0.4mm refills.The 0.25s write really well for a tip that small. They put down a super fine line, not as fine as the Hi-Tec-C, but still a bit finer than a Uniball Signo in 0.28. I really love fine tips and have been using them for a while, so I am not really bothered by the scratch, but those used a much larger tip size will definitely feel it. This is an awesome pen, and I never leave home without it.
